Come Sit In My Chair
Each year the Psychology Department invites siblings of Gillen Brewer students to attend a special night at school.
Siblings who are five years old and older gather with other siblings of similar ages and learn about a typical day at Gillen Brewer.
The children have an opportunity to visit some of the classrooms and talk with other siblings while they participate in activities and then eat pizza together. The psychologists facilitate discussions about what makes Gillen Brewer different from other schools as well as what it is like to be the sibling of a child with special needs. Given the anticipated topics for discussion, this workshop is intended for typically developing siblings.
We look forward to welcoming back siblings who have previously attended this workshop and those coming for the first time. It is always a wonderful evening!
